McConnell's Congrats to Biden Spark Backlash
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's decision to congratulate Joe Biden is sparking an immediate backlash from conservatives on social media.
McConnell on Tuesday called Biden the president-elect and said the Electoral College "has spoken."
His comments came during a speech on the Senate floor.
"Many of us had hoped the presidential election would yield a different result," McConnell admitted.
Still, many on Twitter lashed out against the comments from the Kentucky Republican.
"'Yes, Democrats are the opponents,'" one Twitter user approvingly quoted a linked article. "'However, the far more urgent MAGA ENEMY is Mitch McConnell.'"
Another wrote: "My running list of turncoat RINO's [Republican In Name Only] keeps getting longer by the day."
And one supporter of President Donald Trump tweeted: "You have made all the MSM [mainstream media], especially CNN very happy with your pronouncement. Republic voters, and poll watchers who were bullied at the polls, not so much."
Still another wrote: "Traitor. McConnell always has been a Trump hater. He is Deep State."
And one person, calling themselves the "Voice of reason" on Twitter, noted: "You just acknowledge the traitors Biden and Harris as president/VP elect. Are you a traitor too? I think so."
